Social Dream Lab

Contemporary culture is awash in the rhetoric of dreams and revolutionary longing. From attempts to revitalize America (the American Dream) and reinvigorate civil rights (the Dream Act) to recent global grassroots movements that imagine a future of social, economic, and environmental justice for all, collective aspirations are being creatively expressed and shared with unprecedented speed and reach. During the month of February 2013, the Kimball Education Gallery will be used as a laboratory for exploring the intersection of individual and shared states of (un)consciousness. Invited guests will include experts from diverse backgrounds who will facilitate dream experiments using both poetic and scientific methodologies. During the month, artists Wilson and Zimmerman will continue research and production for their experimental film Close the Eyes as they further examine both personal and collective dynamics of dreaming and its relationship to larger social and cultural issues of our time.

Saturday, Febraury 16, 2 pm
Soul's Melodies: an unfolding of poetry, music, and meditation featuring performances by Taneen Sufi Musical Ensemble and renown Sufi writer and scholar Dr. Nahid Angha.
